PICTORIAL: Appeal Court decides on Adeleke, Oyetola’s fate

The judgement in the case emanating from the July 16, 2022 governorship election in Osun State is underway at the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja.

The PUNCH reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission had returned Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party as the winner of the poll.

INEC said Adeleke polled 403,371 votes, to defeat then-incumbent Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the APC, who got 375,027 votes.

But Oyetola and the APC rejected the result of the poll and headed for the tribunal.

In its January 27, 2023 majority verdict, the Justice Tertse Kume-led tribunal annulled Adeleke’s victory and declared Oyetola the winner of the poll.

However, a minority judgment by Justice B. Ogbuli affirmed Adeleke as the winner of the poll.

Displeased, Adeleke and the PDP headed for the Court of Appeal.

The Court of Appeal heard the appeal on March 13 and reserved its judgment.
